Hello, my friends! Brief snow storms and budding allergies (ah-choo!) and book deadlines sum up this month for me. I’m in the midst of wrapping up a very big deadline for the next sewing book, so I’m doing a rapid-fire, bare-bones update today. Fingers crossed that there are no late nights ahead of me!
Here are the things I created for this sweet, short month (you can see more images on Instagram here):
A gingham cross-over button-down shirt from Simply Sewn: Clothes for Every Season by Michiyo Ito:
The Cali Faye Gardenia Dress pattern in tunic length (wow, I’m looking tired):
Self-drafted snow pants for K – an emergency sewing project when the snow storm hit a couple of weekends ago:
Waxed canvas sun hats from Lotta Jansdotter’s Simple Sewing book. The first one I made was way too big for me, so I shortened the crown by 1.25″ and I really like it!
SURFACE PATTERN DESIGNS
As always, lots of cuteness and animals…
I Photoshopped faux patterns onto the covers of the Quiet Adventure Books from my latest book, ANIMAL FRIENDS TO SEW:
Some vintage-inspired potholder designs:
Silly and adorable totes:
Floral gift tags/cards that I made into free printables here:
I hope the tags come in handy!
That’s it for this month! So, so amazed that I’ve managed to sew and design stuff for two months in a row! I hope to update you in a more leisurely fashion next time…
